fwupd dependencies

Not a technical problem per se, more like curiousity on my part. Why is it on non-mobile phone hardware fwupd (1.3.5-1) requires modemmanager (1.12.0-2), its related split package libmm-glib (1.12.02), and now mobile-broadband-provider-info (20190618-1)?

I run KDE/Plasma on a laptop and mobile-broadband-provider-info, which seems to be a Gnome project, seems a bit out-of-place on my system.

Thank you

Re: fwupd dependencies

Fwupd is built with meson which I know next to nothing about.  But from a quick reading of the file and meson_options.txt, it would seem that these are included as dependencies of fwupd when it is built with the "plugin_modem_manager" option set to true.  This option defaults to false in the upstream source, and there is no patch or change applied in the PKGBUILD to this setting.

From this it looks like those may be unneeded dependencies.  It'd be good if someone more familiar with fwupd and/or meson could confirm before this goes to the bug tracker though.

Re: fwupd dependencies

NOTE : building with extra-x86_64-build gave a check error , I used makepkg -Crs --nocheck to build .

Output of meson configure run from src/build directory (run after building) confirms trilby findings.
Removing modemmanager from depends array gives no build errors .

$ meson configure
